HC Deb 01 August 1946 vol 426 c240W
77. Major Legge-Bourke

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General what significance was intended for the symbols which appear on the 3d. edition of Victory stamps; and why this particular stamp in the series was selected for this purpose.

Mr. Burke

The design is symbolic of peace and reconstruction and was selected as suitable for the stamp most in use on correspondence to foreign countries.
